Plot Synopsis

NOTORIOUS is a one-hour docuseries that chronicles the lives of twisted individuals who gained fame for doing things far outside of the bounds of legality and morality? These are stories of extortion, stalking, lying, defrauding and even murder. Whether it's Anthony Wiener's descent from rising political star to sex offender, one of the world's richest heiresses Patty Hearst robbing a bank at gunpoint, or Aaron Hernandez going from NFL star and multi-millionaire to being convicted of murder and ultimately taking his own life while behind bars Notorious explores the darker side of fame. Through interviews with crime experts, recreations, archival footage and police reports viewers will learn the stories and motivations behind these individuals who surpassed infamy to become truly notorious.

The series opener focused on Griselda Blanco (aka La Madrina), the godmother of cocaine and brutal drug lord who crushed anyone who stood in her way. As the ultimate black widow, she built a narcotics empire in the city of Miami and ignited the cocaine cowboy drug wars. Before Pablo Escobar and before El Chapo, there was Griselda Blanco.

The second episode begins in 1978, when a string of mail bombings terrorized the country and left 23 people injured and three people dead. Investigators chased down hundreds of leads but for years the bomber's identity remained a mystery. He was known to the public only as the "Unabomber" until a particular turn of phrase led authorities and introduced the world to Ted Kaczynski.
